Radiance Dome
Available during the entire festival day and night, the multi-media geodesic Radiance Dome, which debuted to great acclaim during the 2013 Burning Man Festival, will feature glowing panels designed to inspire creative expression by melding art and interactive technology.
Winner of the 2013 LuciteLux© Just Imagine Award, the Radiance Dome during the day will project geodesic structures and transparent panels that will resonate with nature in their elegant geometry, with the triangular panels and steel creating intriguing shadows and perspectives, highlighted by colorful discs illuminated by the sun. At night, the faces of the domes vividly glow with swirling mosaics of colors in response to their surroundings. A DJ will add sound to the play of light, creating a magical experience.

Designed by Light at Play, the Radiance Dome multi-media environment composes layers of light, perspective, and animation in a 40-foot interactive and immersive geodesic environment that responds to participants as they dance to the music.
“The Radiance dome is an illuminated structure controlled by an interactive software system designed to facilitate a closer relationship between music and movement,” said Kenyon Acton, Light at Play co-owner.
“The dome consists of 200 light trans missive acrylic panels, each individually controlled and illuminated by LEDs. Each panel contributes to a coordinated light show directed by the music, the movement of those within the dome, or through interacting with an iPad. It was conceived of and created for the 2013 Burning Man festival to provide a space for tango and blues dancing,” Acton said.

About Bob’s Ranch 
Set on a beautiful 150 acre private property in Marcola, Ore., Bob’s Ranch has also hosted the Northwest World Reggae Festival for the last seven years. Giant fir trees line the property and surround the camping areas and festival grounds providing an abundance of camping options and comfortable shade. One can splash in the shallow creek during the heat of the day and take a walk down the shady 1,000 foot trail adorned with visual art to our Mohawk Valley Music Festival Gypsy Stage. A family friendly event, the Mohawk Valley Music Festival will also feature a Kid’s Stage during the day with a parade and family camping options and locations.
